Token Slogans The Boss and The Land of the Lost

Photo by Vijay Bhaskar on

A high ranking manager at my place of employment remarked on the seminal protests and riots after the George Floyd murder:

The Liberals have gotten what they have asked for!

The comment gave me pause?

While other co-workers nodded and affirmed

I informed the boss

The political and social slur was not ripe for applause

Never mind that his use of the word “Liberal”

Is defined solely within him!

Whatever his actual definition thereof

To the outside world slack and lost!

As any thinking adult can surmise without overdo surprise

In general people hold all kinds of persuasions peccadilloes and thoughts

The token slogan as it were

Based on a Superiority cause

Is exactly what has gotten us to this place from the first case

Utilizing these kinds of lazy broad expressions

Social and political mumbo jumbo

The pigeonhole of thought for the unsophisticated and cohorts

Ignoramus bores!

It seems to me unpleasantly

Only leads the pious plebes

To the Land of the Lost
